About this deal

Trivia Track -- A text based fact track about the holiday season, its associated myths, and the production. how Buddy finds his father (James Caan) and the meaning of Christmas is a joyous, jaunty, sweet-as-a-candy-cane gift for everyone who loves bright contemporary comedy - and timeless all-family classics. I do wish Ferrell’s track was funnier and that both men sat down together to record a single, chattier track, but the existing commentaries add quite a bit of value to the Blu-ray’s supplemental package.

But most importantly, he sees that the world is seriously lacking in Christmas spirit, which causes Santa all kinds of problems! Once upon a Christmas Eve, an orphan baby crawled into Santa's bag of gifts and was taken to the North Pole.

I've seen the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in person many times, but I don't think it's ever looked more beautiful and magical or twinkled more brightly than it does here. While revealing his origin, Papa explains to Buddy that his real father, a wealthy publishing executive named Walter Hobbs (James Caan), is alive and well in New York City.

Deleted/Alternate Scenes (SD, 12 minutes) -- Eight cuts and extensions don’t amount to much material, but it’s an amusing collection that will give fans a few additional laughs.

It seems some remastering has been performed, and the result is a lusher, sleeker picture with less grain that still maintains a film-like feel. He must rely on Buddy's expertise and overall enthusiasm to ensure that Christmas will be saved once again. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. With all the reds, greens, and golds on display and all the falling snow, holiday movies are a natural for 4K UHD, and Warner's eye-popping rendering of Elf serves up a potent Christmas cocktail that intoxicates the senses.

Despite facing much criticism for its picture quality, even on Blu-ray does it remain a proven hit for Warner Bros. Unfortunately side and rear wall phantom images are non existent, which affects the level of immersion you feel. Needless to say, the unlikely spectacle of a 6'5' man dressed from head to foot in bright green stands out a mile on the streets of the Big Apple, and the good-natured Buddy finds himself in all sorts of scrapes as he gets used to his new family and surroundings - and they get used to him. The trouble is that his dad, Walter (James Caan), is a publishing executive who doesn't have time for anything other than work. Audio Commentaries -- are a pair of audio commentaries, one with director Jon Favreau and a second with actor Will Ferrell.

While the picture quality of this film has some serious issues, I can recommend this movie on the strength of its content. It's bright, light, funny, charming, but does not seem trite, forced, or play to the lowest common denominator.

Buddy moves in with Walter and his family, and proceeds to teach them a lesson or two about what being a family really means.

As it stands, fans won’t find much to complain about, but audiophiles will wish the track had as much seasonal punch as the film’s best gags. Raised by Papa Elf (Bob Newhart), Buddy (Will Ferrell) comes to realise he doesn't fit in with the other elves.
